    Description

    1887 Three Dollar, PR62
    An Unusual Proof Issue

    1887 $3 PR62 NGC. Although only 160 proofs were struck of this date it appears they were struck in four batches, and may be distinguished from each other by reverse die alignments. This coin is from the first batch, as seen from the normal, 180-degree die alignment. As a way to distinguish genuine proofs from prooflike business strikes, the proofs have the 1 in the date placed just beyond the left of the bottom serif of the first L in DOLLARS. On business strikes it is further left, and it helps to have a business strike or a photo to make this distinction more apparent. The fields show the usual orange-peel texture seen on proof gold from this era. The surfaces are also hairlined, thus explaining the grade, with a few contact marks scattered about.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28AW, PCGS# 8051)
